The Russel Wright Collection is Growing

Last summer, I started a Russel Wright dinnerware collection with a set of 8 American Modern plates in granite grey and coral and a grey chop platter that I found at an estate sale.

Recently, I found more at another estate sale, also in coral. This time I found more interesting pieces, like the celery tray, covered vegetable dish, vegetable bowl, and lug bowls. The photo above shows the color more accurately.
On Saturday, I found a matching sugar bowl and creamer in a half price sale at an antique store. I'm enjoying collecting American Modern dinnerware much more than Franciscan Starburst because it's easier to find and more affordable.

Those are two of my favorite colors in AM. I have several pieces of the granite gray too. I have a few pieces of coral too that I plan to sell. (I collect Russel Wright Iroquois Casual in a big way. I have service for 16 in ripe apricot and avocado yellow, plus lots of serving pieces.)
